Kill jobs which are currently running on the batch system.

In case of an error when killing, the function tries - after a short sleep - to kill the remaining batch jobs again. If this fails three times for some jobs, the function gives up. Jobs that could be successfully killed are reset in the Registry.

killJobs(ids = NULL, reg = getDefaultRegistry())
